ID Technology: Pallet labeler for harsh environments
ID Technology’s specialized Pallet Labeler Model 252E-AC for use in the harshest environments features a stainless steel enclosure to protect the label printer applicator from dust and debris, and an air conditioner/heater mounted below the enclosure as part of the fixed base stand to control the temperature inside the enclosure; it is no longer necessary to use a separate enclosure to protect the applicator, since the enclosure and applicator are one.
All machine components and modules are mounted on a unique faceplate and the stainless steel enclosure is then wrapped around the faceplate. This provides optimum access, as both the front and back panels are hinged for easy access to the print engine, operator controls, and for media loading. The enclosure is also equipped with a removable door for label application operations. The fixed rugged mounting base provides stability throughout the labeling process.
The 252E is built with the same Centerline-Modularity design as the Model 252 Label Printer Applicator, eliminating as many adjustment points as possible for increased uptime and lower operating cost.
The 252E features a new touch screen user interface for easier programming, a unique plasma coated air assist tube that eliminates label sticking, and a 14.5-in. label unwind. The larger unwind allows for greater uptime since labels need to be replaced less often.
An option for a fixed base without the air conditioner/heater is also available: Model 252E-FB.
